    A venue not to pass on

    Wild Basin Lodge and its team made our wedding day incredible! From coordinating our first tour with them to the wedding day, they were fantastic. Hawley informed us of fire conditions when we were supposed to take a tour of the venue and was super helpful in rescheduling with us as an out of town couple. Because we are from out of town, we were able to schedule a private tasting and work closely with the team on site while we were in town. Makenna was a wonderful coordinator, very responsive and offering ideas whenever needed. Her energetic personality matched with our group so well and it was so fun to work with her. Todd crafted delicious signature cocktails that our guests throughly enjoyed. The chef was fantastic to work with! He made an amazing custom German menu based on family recipes I provided (and translated) and guests still rave about the food! The venue itself is breathtaking and the perfect spot for our winter wedding. We got married down in the Meadow Peak location that was the perfect backdrop in our photos. We all loved warming up in front of the beautiful stone fireplace inside afterwards. Overall, our experience working with the team here was fantastic and we highly recommend them! We could not have asked for a better wedding day or experience.

    Magical Wedding

    The first word that comes to mind when I think about my wedding at Wild Basin Lodge is magical. We could not have asked for a better setting for our big day with mountain peak backdrops, a sprawling field of wildflowers (summer), and a beautiful rushing river. The lodge itself is beautiful, tucked back in the trees, with its separate dining area from the reception area which is so nice because your guests will have plenty of space to roam around without worrying about getting in the way of staff taking down or setting up different spaces. Speaking of the staff, I cannot say enough about how wonderful the staff is. This was a destination wedding for us, and we were primarily communicating virtually since all of our planning time was during the height of Covid. The staff could not be more helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating to our every need. Dawn, the event/venue coordinator, talked through every step with us along the way, and on the day of, she and her assistant made sure each step went without a hitch. Todd, front of house manager, is also a mixologist and created the most perfect signature cocktails for our guests and made sure the food came out promptly during dinner. Hats off to the chef because the food was amazing, and it was all prepared right there at the lodge without having to order through a separate caterer. There were tons of options to choose from for the food too if you are looking for something beyond your standard steak and chicken. They serve the food family style too, so your guests can sample a little bit of everything and don't have to commit to one meal option. The best part of it all, you get access to the whole property for you and your guests for the whole day. Staff are working for just you all day to make sure you have everything you need, and you can really enjoy this beautiful slice of nature in peace and quiet. If you are looking for the all inclusive experience with a stunning backdrop, look no further than Wild Basin Lodge.

    Great for Intimate Weddings

    Wild Basin was the perfect venue for our intimate ceremony and dinner. The space is great for both intimate and larger parties, as it has the space but doesn't feel empty without all the people. We had 13 people, including myself and the groom, and both the ceremony site and dinner by the river felt intimate and close to nature (which we love!). The WBL team is also amazing to work with, very accommodating and have lots of ideas to make your day just how you imagine...and are totally up for trying things they haven't done before! Also - the food is sooo good!

    Wild Basin Lodge and Event Center's reply:

    Kate, we were IN LOVE with your river deck dinner!!! The photos of the elopement are just stunning! Thank you so much for sharing! I hope your life as a married couple is full of joy.

I might be biased because I live so close, but Wild Basin Lodge is one of my favorite venues! It's the perfect place for a quintessential "Colorado wedding" with a comfortable, lodge atmosphere and amazing staff. You can customize your wedding experience as much as you want, and it's perfect for the DIY couple OR the couple who wants everything planned for them. If you want somewhere a little more remote with views to die for, check them out!

This venue is simply stunning with an option to marry on the river or with a view of the incredible Rocky Mountains as a backdrop. If you're looking for a true mountain venue, Wild Basin is a must!

Wild Basin Lodge is the perfect location for a colorado mountain wedding. It has a rustic mountain lodge feel, beautiful mountain backdrop, multiple locations for a ceremony, and the Colorado mountain cabin feel. It is about a 0.1 mile to the ceremony location we used. The view was amazing with the mountains in the background. The seating were trees sawed in two and smoothed out and treated. It had a spot for musicians, electrical, and paved paths around the ceremony area. The path there was a wood chip and not for 4inch heels but overall a beautiful and scenic walk. The tables and seating all have the mountain lodge theme. The lodge is alongside a river, close to a lake, and has lots of variety for photography. The rooms looked great and the bridal prep space was ideal with the wrap around mirrors, multiple wall mirrors, and lighting. The Wild Basin Lodge event staff was excellent. Laura was our main point of contact coordinating for the venue. She sync’d up with us at the start of the day and showed us how things would flow with the horse drawn carriage, the flow for the ceremony, and she also recommended some photography locations. Normally when you have someone from the venue driving the coordination you have someone who only seems to care about the venue. At Wild Basin Lodge it was not that way but there was a genuine desire to do more than have things setup and get hot food out on time. There was help with the flow of the day, flexibility, and regular communication. So not only was the food at Wild Basin Lodge excellent and things setup early but the day just seemed to flow well. If your in the hunt for a wedding venue and are considering a mountain wedding venue check out Wild Basin Lodge!
